Alaska marijuana regulators have delayed discussions about onsite marijuana consumption until next month.
The state’s Marijuana Control Board was expected to consider whether to move forward with proposed rules for letting retail cannabis customers to consume their purchases on site
It’s something that no other state that has legalized the recreational use of marijuana has permitted.
The board used its two day meeting to go through a backlog of permit applications for retail stores and manufacturing facilities.
“They really wanted to concentrate on approved applications at this meeting so people could begin with their businesses as we move into summer,” said Erika McConnell, director of the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Board. “Onsite consumption was kind of the big time-consuming issue that they pushed until the end and then we ran out of time. ”
